Napoli President Aurelio De Laurentiis blasted Marek Hamsik's agent Mino Raiola. “He should mind his own business.”
It is believed the controversy over Hamsik's future has been mainly generated by a member of his entourage.
Raiola, who also represents Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Mario Balotelli among others, is pushing for the Slovak to join Milan this summer.
“Marek is a lovely lad and I care for him very much,” explained De Laurentiis in the Corriere dello Sport.
“Raiola advised me to sell him. I replied: Mind your own business.”
De Laurentiis also confirmed today that if he were to part with Hamsik, who he values at €100m, then he'd only hand him over to Inter.
